Chapter 383: The Time is Ripe
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Yu Cheng and his group cut off their connection with Yu Shiling. Shiling knew that they were in trouble immediately and that Lin Feng could have caught wind of their actions. The Yu Clan and the Aeolus Sect made preparations to counter the Celestial Sect of Wonders.
Lin Feng had already thought of this point. He was not afraid that the Yu Clan and Aeolus Sect knew about him coming. He was deliberately trying to escalate matters.
As he had to wait for Liu Zhikun to deliver the Deathly Gas Stone, Lin Feng could not allow Yu Cheng to cut off their connection with Yu Shiling immediately.
If communication was ceased and the Celestial Sect of Wonders did not arrive, there were only 3 possibilities.
Firstly, Yu Cheng and his group ran into some other trouble that caused them to lose communication. It was easy for Yu Shiling to confirm whether this was the problem.
Secondly, the Celestial Sect of Wonders swallowed this indignance. But with Lin Feng’s style, that was impossible.
Then it could only be the third possibility. Lin Feng knew that it was a trap and did not react according to what they had expected. The Yu Clan and Aeolus Sect would have to be wary of whether Lin Feng was pulling any tricks.
Out of the consideration to keep his opponents unaware, Lin Feng allowed Yu Cheng and his group to maintain communication even after they were captured.
Of course, under the control of Lin Feng’s mana, Yu Cheng and the rest had no way to resist or come up with any sly tricks.
Right now, the time was ripe and he instructed Yu Cheng to break off contact with them, to alarm Yu Shiling. This would also increase their belief that Lin Feng would retaliate.
After that, he controlled his Steel Tree Avatar and brought Zhu Yi, Wang Lin, Kang Nanhua, Miao Shihao, Jieyu and the rest to the hiding spot of Yu Shiling.
Besides Xiao Yan, the entire Celestial Sect was in action.
But Lin Feng’s original self did not follow and remained at Mount Yujing. He smiled and released a streak of Purple Clouds that was converted to an illusion of a light figure. He reestablished communication with the Golden Crow Grand Sage, “The time is ripe.”
“Good!” The Golden Crow Grand Sage replied and the communication was cut.
After ending his conversation with the Golden Crow Grand Sage, Lin Feng released another streak of Purple Clouds, which converted to a new illusion of a light figure.
A voice came from the side, “Is it starting?”
Lin Feng replied, “You all better not arrive later than the Golden Crow.”
The other party laughed, “Relax, we will be much earlier.”
After ending the communication, Lin Feng smiled, “I should make a move too.”
In space, Mount Yujing made a sudden jerk and the leaves of the Black Heavenly Treasure Tree started shaking. They were flashing with a rainbow radiance. In the next moment, the huge mountain disappeared in space.
Whereas on Mount Kunlun, Lin Feng’s Steel Tree Avatar had led the group, who were riding on Jieyu and the Kui Cow King. Very soon, they had arrived at the hiding spot of Yu Shiling and the Aeolus Sect.
Lin Feng said calmly, “All take care.” Everyone acknowledged and ventured off in different directions.
Kang Nanhua, Kui Cow King, Zhu Yi, Wang Lin and Yang Qing were a group. They went to find the Aeolus Sect.
Miao Shihao, Xiao Budian, Tuntun, Jieyu and Yue Hongyan were a team and they went to find Yu Shiling.
Jieyu revealed his dragon form. He was extremely huge and cruised in the skies. Xiao Budian stood on his head and stared at the mountain valley below him quietly. He said, “Jieyu, let’s go down.
Jieyu acknowledged and converted into a beam of black light. He dashed towards the mountain valley like a shooting star.
In the mountain valley, Yu Shiling was waiting. He felt the vibration of mana of Jieyu and immediately clasped his palms together. The Xuanming Primordial Water appeared and converted itself to a huge ice shield.
Jieyu hardly hit the shield like a spear and broke it.
But Jieyu’s strength when colliding against the shield was dissipated by the shield too. His momentum was stalled.
“The Xuanming Primordial Water is indeed special. Although it is not as powerful as the Xuanming beast, it was still very rare. Jieyu knew that although he was only in the beginner stage of a demonic lord, the dragon clan was naturally strong. Going against an average Nascent Soul Stage cultivator was nothing difficult.
But for a Nascent Soul Stage cultivator like Yu Shiling who controlled the Xuanming Primordial Water, he had to deal with him carefully.
But someone would not give him the chance to. Xiao Budian flew into the sky and converted himself into a lightning bolt, dashing towards Yu Shiling more ferociously than Jieyu previously.
Yu Shiling snorted, “Let’s see how much you can take.”
He conjured a spell and a huge amount of Xuanming Primordial Water appeared in space. They gathered together and blocked off Xiao Budian.
Xiao Budian’s body was surging with lightning and thunder and his entire body was converted to a 2 meters tall ghost figure. With a ferocious fist, he punched straight at the Xuanming Primordial Water.
The Xuanming Primordial Water was disturbed but it was not broken apart.
Shi Tianhao took in a deep breath and the Nine-Holed Aurous Core in his body shook. The Aurous Core spat and swallowed a huge amount of spiritual energy which was converted to a tremendous power.
Shi Tianhao’s power increased as the power of thunder and lightning respawned. Although his ghostly figure did not enlarge, the originally light green figure of his became pitch-black.
The ferocious power was unable to be resisted by the Xuanming Primordial Water. It was destroyed layer by layer.
Yu Shiling was a little fearful now. He had heard of Xiao Budian’s powers, that his total mana did not pale in comparison to Nascent Soul Stage cultivators. Yu Shiling had believed that his cultivation was above that of other Nascent Soul Stage cultivators as he guided the Nine Heavens clear air into his body, thus he could at least repress Xiao Budian comfortably.
But after this battle, he found out that although he had an advantage, it was too slim to determine the victor.
As he chanted something, Yu Shiling controlled the Xuanming Primordial Water again, which unveiled a frightening aura. It was as if it had existed since immemorial. It completely froze everything around it, even the space around it.
The ghostly figure that Shi Tianhao converted to had an unclear facial appearance.
But Yu Shiling felt that Shi Tianhao’s face was revealing a smile.
As a light sound was let out, a small crucible appeared on Shi Tianhao’s head. As a green radiance flashed, Shi Tianhao’s mana was further supplemented. Layers and layers of earth-shaking power was attacking the Xuanming Primordial Water.
Shi Tianhao let out a deep groan and his fist became the Dual Hammers of the Heavenly Hammers of the Eight Trigrams.
A destructive power was continuously being released and destroyed the Xuanming Primordial Water.
Yu Shiling’s expression did not change. He clasped his hands and a drop of extremely cultivated Xuanming Primordial Water appeared above his head. It kept on shrinking and eventually became a pure, pitch darkness.
“Immemorial Xuanming Arrow” Yu Shiling conjured her powers and the black droplet was converted to a streak of light, attacking Shi Tianhao like a chord of arrows.
The Immemorial Xuanming Arrow flew across space and left a clear black line. That was not the remnants of his mana, but it was a crack left behind as the Immemorial Xuanming Arrow flew across and cut through space.
Anything that had passed the Immemorial Xuanming Arrow would be crushed.
As Xiao Budian faced this arrow, he lifted his head and shouted, “Uni!”
The ‘Uni’ word of the Xuanhuang Four-Word Mantra was activated and an extremely tremendous power that filled the skies supported space.
But Yu Shiling’s cultivation was way beyond Song Qingyuan at the Spiritual Conference of Huanghai. Xiao Budian’s cultivation was only in the Aurous Core Stage, thus he could not completely stop the Immemorial Xuanming Arrow.
However, with the “Uni” word supporting space, even the domineering Immemorial Xuanming Arrow was unable to be unleashed to its full potential. Its movement was slowed down considerably. Initially, it was as fast as lightning, but now it was struggling to proceed.
Shi Tianhao slapped his head and a streak of white light emerged. In space, a circular mirror appeared, which was entirely white and ancient. It was the Aurora Polar Mirror that he won after defeating Song Qingyuan at the Spiritual Conference of Huanghai.
With Lin Feng’s help, the item was cultivated by Xiao Budian.
The Aurora Polar Mirror aimed at the Immemorial Xuanming Arrow in space. A beam of blue light shot out from it and engulfed the Immemorial Xuanming Arrow.
If only the mirror was used to battle the Xuanming Primordial Water, Yu Shiling’s Xuanming Primordial Water was better. But now that the Immemorial Xuanming Arrow was suppressed by Shi Tianhao’s “Uni” word, the Aurora Polar Mirror could dismantle and destroy the arrow.
Miao Shihao and Jieyu did not make a move. At this point, Tuntun and Yue Hongyan started to scan the mountain valley for the Yu Clan Aurous Core Stage cultivators and Foundation Establishment Stage cultivators.
But at this point, a tremendous power suddenly came from a distance.
Miao Shihao looked at Jieyu, “As what Master expected, he is not lousy.”
The skies in the distance developed a crack. Someone walked out from it. His mana was creepy and above his head was a streak of clear air that shot straight to the Nine Heavens. It was another Nascent Soul Stage Grandmaster from the Yu Clan.
But this person was not attention-seeking. After walking out from the spatial gap, he paved the way for someone behind.
It was an elder in white. He scanned Shi Tianhao, Miao Shihao and the rest, before snorting, “The Celestial Sect of Wonders, hmph!”
There was a figure coming from his head and was converted to a giant that was at least 10 feet tall.
This giant stepped onto space. It only had one arm and its face only had an eye. Its eye was like a water droplet that froze into an ice crystal. There was a strong power emanating from it then threatened to freeze the entire place.
As the giant appeared, the areas around Mount Kunlun were converted to a snow field. It was dark and left one depress
As the Celestial Sect disciples saw this scene, they were fearful.
Miao Shihao said, “Cosmic Form, Advanced Stage of the Nascent Soul Stage”
